#462 Don Slaught
Why this card is awesome: Because for a long time, I assumed Slaught was a pitcher due to this picture. I realize that sounds odd, but I became a baseball fan in the offseason between 1987 and 1988, and this photo really confused me for later, when I couldn't understand why Sluggo wasn't pitching.
Cool stat: This is neat. Look at the list of all pitchers that Slaught homered more than once off of: Tanana, Harnisch, Leibrandt, Bud Black, Mike Morgan, Higuera, Tommy John, and Curt Young. That's a pretty good group of guys.
